About TfC. . .

  Tendering for Care (TfC) is a suite of services which was devised in late 2005 with the help of social care providers. The services are designed to meet the needs and requirements of providers, to help them to tender successfully for public contracts, and where purchasers fail to comply with the law, to point this out. Nine years on, the services remain virtually unchanged from those originally devised. Over the years some additional resources have been added at the specific request of providers.

At its heart TfC is a membership organisation. Members vary in size (annual turnover varying from


£750,000 to £200 million); and their organisational sectors cover the complete range of providers of outsourced services in health and social care (private, voluntary, public and NHS social enterprises).

Membership of TfC provides a cost effective solution for providers who want up to the minute information, details of tenders published, and to have experienced specialist help always on hand to deal with their tendering questions and to gain a competitive edge.
